Persian Star is a perhaps the most beautiful of the standard group of Purple Stripes with its thick white bulb wrappers that are streaked with purple as you peel away the outer wrappers. When the wrappers are all peeled away the clove covers with their distinctive long sharp points resemble an eight point star, hence their name.They apparently originated in Uzbekistan, one of those central Asian Islamic republics that were once part of the USSR. They are a full flavored garlic with only a small bite to them and are more mellow than hot as are most other standard Purple Stripes. They're pretty enough to be used as a centerpiece.
If you are a true garlic gourmet you owe it to yourself to get a few of these and be sure to save some for planting in the early fall. They probably do better in colder winter climates with cooler springs than we have but they have done fine here in central Texas. They mature in mid season. Know where your food comes from.
